How to get prescription to get medicine from clinic?
Hi im currently very confused. Im seeing the doctor from bumrungrad hospital. As i know getting my Stribild there is alot more expensive than from Thai Red Cross. I have asked the doctor whether he can prescribe me prescription to get my medicine from red cross. He said that he cant get me prescriptions outside. So my questions are: 1. Is there a recommendations for any doctors for me to go to have prescriptions? 2. The red cross itself do they have doctors available?

Postponing next appointment
Hello - I have two questions. (1) I was scheduled to come back in March when my six-month prescription of PReP runs out. Due to unforeseen circumstance, I cannot come back in March but only in April. If during this time, I can source PReP for this month, when I come back in April, could I still continue with the 6-month prescription at your clinic? (2). I tried emailing the last question to an e-mail address I was given so I can send my blood/kidney/liver function test to you but since I have received no response, could you please let me know whether it's still okay to send the result back by e-mails? thank you!

Purchasing medicine at the clinic
Hi there! I am planning to come to the clinic next week to purchase Stribild as I am currently living overseas. I will have my doctor's prescription as I want to purchase 6 month's of medicine. It is my first time coming here. I want to ask a few questions: 1. Do I need to make an appointment to the clinic to get the medicine? If so who do I contact? 2. Do I need to see a doctor beforehand or can I just purchase the medicine right away with my prescription? 3. Is there a long waiting time for the medicine purchase? 4. Do you accept credit card or only Thai Baht in cash? 5. Do you have stock for 6 months supply of Stribild available? I notice some people asking about availability on this webboard. Thank you so much and I look forward to your reply. Many thanks, Dan

NAT and CRF AE
Hi once again! And thank you for last reply. I'm only left with one question, which I guess many people would have. Does NAT test for CRF AE, also known as HIV subtype E? Advanced thanks

My test results
Good Day, Doctor Greg! On October 3rd I was in Phuket. I hooked up with a girl of unknown HIV status in tinder and we had french kissing, mutual masturbation and she gave me an unprotected blowjob. As I know, HIV is not transmittable and Through Kissing Masturbation, but what concerns Me is oral sex. My First Test was in Red Cross Clinic on November 3rd, negative. No follow up call from SEARCH (hopefully they got my phone number correctly). I was not sure Result in this, though I was reassured by staff that I consider this Test Can conclusive. As a Result I've waited for 6 weeks and repeated the Test Mark in Red Cross on November 17th, also negative. Waiting for Call from SEARCH still. At this Point I'm anxious because I have Fever (37,4 Celsius), Sore throat and Muscle pains. I Understand that HIV Can not be confirmed by symptoms, but it Gets Me worried. I Understand the CDC Recommendation of 12 weeks and I Will Come to Test Window period after 12 weeks regardless your answer, but still. How reliable is my 6 weeks negative test? You have seen people Seroconverting negative after 6 weeks before? I would also like to kindly ask for a favor. Could you please check with SEARCH regarding my test result on November 3, and November 17? I know, it's not your job and you do not get paid for it, but it would help me so much to know that they did not call me because the result was negative and not because I left wrong telephone number or anything like that. . My card no. is 1623733. Wow, that's a Big message, but not I Hope You Too Boring :) Great Thanks for what I do and if You accept donations or buy Can You Let Me a Beer just let meknow!

Details on the Anonymous clinic services.
Hi Greg, I'm from Singapore recently diagnosed +ve and plan to travel to Thailand for cheaper medication. Please help me with the questions below 1. Does the Anonymous clinic help with emailing the blood results which take longer than a couple of days (Possibly in English ) as this would cut down the number of days of stay I would require in BKK. Can the blood tests be done non Anonymusly? 2. Does the drug depending unit give any invoice with patient names? (Have a tiny bit of HIV coverage in my medical insurance , so I want to know if I can use the invoice for claiming back from insurance as every tiny bit would help).

Dear Greg, According to your earlier post (http://www.adamslove.org/en-agallery.php?mid=101 ), “Stribild has now been approved by the Thai FDA and the purchasing process is underway.” Is Stribild now available at the TRCARC Anonymous Clinic? Your reply will be very much appreciated. Best regards, Soochow

Interpreting Hepatitis B Test Results
Dear Greg, My Anti-HBs results was e-mailed to be today. Below are my results (48 days after possible exposure): HBsAg - Negative Anti-HBs - Positive From our previous conversation, I understand having a positive Anti-HBs results is good--meaning I am immune. But on the paper, Positive is in red font and it says that normal is Negative so it looks a bit scary. Can you please explain to my what my results mean? Do I need to take any further tests or start medication? Or am I free of the virus and safe? Thanks. Mark

Does NAT also screen for Hepatitis B
Dear Greg, I understand that blood with a negative 4th gen combo HIV result will then be tested with NAT. Can I just ask if the NAT will also detect a Hepatitis B infection? If yes, will the Thai Red Cross call me if they see Hepatitis B in my bloob? Thanks.

HIV 2 Detection
Dear Greg, Hope all is well. Previously I asked the question: Does the 4th gen combo test & NAT test detect both HIV 1 and HIV 2? You responded: Both the 4th generation HIV antibody test and NAT can detect both HIV 1 & HIV 2. I have since called the SEARCH number your provided to ask about the NAT results for my blood collection date and they say all came in normal. Then I asked if the NAT detects both HIV 1 and 2 and the person I talked to said it was only for HIV 1. Can I please double check this information with you? Can you confirm that it can also detect HIV 2. Again, just to be sure and for my peace of mind. I know HIV 2 is not prevalent in Thailand but my possible exposure was with a sex worker so anything can be possible with her previous encounters with other tourists. Thank you. Mark

“One-stop” treatment service at The After-Hours Clinic
Dear Greg, According to your earlier post (http://www.adamslove.org/en-agallery.php?mid=93 ), “The After-Hours Clinic at the TRCARC provides the opportunity for clients/patients to receive “one-stop” comprehensive HIV testing and treatment services, without having to seek outside medical supervision.” Regarding the “one-stop” treatment service you kindly mentioned, can you please confirm whether my following understanding is correct: As a non-Thai national currently on HIV medication, I do NOT have to obtain a prescription from a doctor based outside the TRCARC (e.g. at the Bangkok Christian Hospital) before I go to the TRCARC to buy relevant medicine. I can SIMPLY visit the After-Hours Clinic, consult a doctor (by paying the Doctor's fee 400 Baht) there, obtain his/her prescription, and then buy medicine at the After-Hours Clinic. Your reply will be very much appreciated. Best regards, Soochow

TRC HIV Test Inquiries
Hello Greg, I had a possible HIV exposure July 9, 2016. I've had two tests in the Thai Red Cross Anonymous clinic: 1. July 30, Saturday (21 days after) 2. August 4, Thursday (26 days after) Both came out negative after the 60 minute 4th generation test. And I was told that all blood samples are then re-tested using NAT and results come 3 days after. Just some questions please: 1. Can you confirm that ALL blood samples in the Anonymous clinic are tested using NAT after the 4th gen combo test? 2. Can I take my two 4th generation results as conclusive? Am I safe? 3. Just for peace of mind, can you please help check my NAT result? I have not received a call but I want to be sure. (HN 1601930) 4. Is the NAT test 100% accurate after 21 and 26 days? Any chance for false negatives? 5. Does the 4th gen combo test & NAT test detect both HIV 1 and HIV 2? Sorry for all the questions. I'm sure you get this a lot but I am stressed out and anxious as I've had a fever for more than a week now. Thank you very much. I appreciate your work in this website.

Triumeq or Genvoya?
As I read here now there is no plan to get Triumeq in Thailand. But how about Genvoya? Attripla? Always Kivexa and Viramune is annoying. One pill a day should be enough and also a target for Thai FDA....cannot remember.

Prescription in Chinese
So I have managed to get my doc to prescrib me truvada here in Taiwan and i am planning on getting it in BKK Red Cross centre as its much more affordable there. In order to get Truvada at Red Cross centre, u will need the prescription from your doc, which i did. The problem here is that my doc could only get me prescription in Chinese, the only things in eng are the name of Truvada and dosage and the reason for it, other than that its all in chinese. My question here is that if i take this prescription to Red Cross Centre, will they be able to let me purchase Truvada? or i will need to get the prescription translated into English?

Increase costs in Off-Clinic Hours
I could understand a nominal increase in off-clinic hours but a 10% increase in ARV meds and 20% increase in laboratory tests, is absurd for a not for profit organization. Hope Thai Red Cross change this policy. Not all of us are free to leave work during office hours and must go after hours or Saturdays. Please reconsider.

Undetectable Status
Hello! I am a Filipino and just recently found having an HIV. In Philippines, you cant work abroad if you are HIV positive unless the country you are going to work are allowing HIV patient. Note that currently I am working here in Thailand for more than 3 years. Of course before coming here I was negative. According to some journal, you can get undetectable status if you continue ARV medications. I just started 2 weeks ago my ARV treatment. I wish to know if somehow, my status became undetectable would that mean that my HIV test shows negative result?

Availability of Tivicay/Dolutegravir
While it has been anticipated that Tivicay/Dolutegravir might receive approval from the Thai FDA in May of this year, there is still no word of when approval may be forthcoming. GlaxoSmithKlein has suggested that approval is not imminent because the regulatory dossier was submitted after Gilead Sciences' dossier for Stribild- filed in May 2013, approval still pending. We will keep you informed of any new developments. A list of medications currently available at the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre are listed on the following webpage: http://www.adamslove.org/en-d.php?id=73 Adam's Love Team

Received Oral, Frottage, Genital Rubbing
Hi Adam Love Team, I have talked to 1663 and official at Adam Love Hotline (022532666) and I have received the same answers that I am not at risk of HIV infection and HIV test is not warranted for the following encounters: 1. I am a man have received oral for less than 2 minutes from an unknown status partner - I have no cut on my genital - there was no visible blood after the oral sex was performed - I have licked the partner's male genital twice (not the tip of the penis) but did not put my whole mouth in. I have no open sore or cut inside my mouth or lip - Q. Do i have any risk here from receiving the oral or possible precum from the licking? 2. We have engaged in frottage, male genital rubbing against male genital and male genital rubbing against anal where the opening of my penis might come in contact with fluid outside the anus but no penetration occur and again I cannot see any visible cut or open wound on the opening of my penis- Q. Do i have any risk here from premium and anal fluid outside the body? 3. Mutual masturbation with no ejaculation - I have minor cut on my hand but there are not bleeding - Q. Do I have nay risk here from premium outside the body that could get into my hands? 4. Me and partner have finished ourselves with self masturbation where ejaculation have occurred for both parties but his semen did not come into contact with my body then I proceed to wash my self after the entire act - Q. Any risk from the semen that have come outside the body? Thank you so much in advance for your confirmation.
